Whilst the universities are responsible for teaching students the knowledge they need when first graduating, (‘Day One Competencies’), is on Extra-Mural Study placements where students further their practical skills in animal handling and apply in ‘real life’ the clinical skills they have learnt at university. New graduates are therefore able to ‘hit the ground running’, having developed their Day One competencies whilst on EMS placements during their degree course.
The Mayhew Community Veterinary Clinic is known to provide high standard, hands on, practical orientated EMS placements focusing on animal welfare and shelter medicine. Our placements are high in demand so students are encouraged to book well in advance.
Please note, due to expansion of our veterinary clinic we can currently not accept any applications for 2016. If you wish to apply for 2016 please contact our Chief Veterinary Officer Ursula Goetz, MRCVS, GPCert (SAS) at email@example.com from January 2016 onwards.
